Rediscovering the Joy of Cooking

El Cholo (Pasadena, CA)

Filed under: restaurant review — Emily @ 5:03 am

We went to the Pasadena location of El Cholo, which has several restaurants in L.A., and has been in existence since 1923 (originally called the Sonora Cafe). It is delicious! And the outdoor patio at the Pasadena location is great—especially for large groups (as we were) and parties.

Tortilla Soup–cup ($3.95)

Fiesta Platter for 2 ($9.50)–Crab and Beef Taquitos, Nachos, Quesadillas, and Chimichangas served with Guacamole and Sour Cream

Sizzling Fajitas ($14.75)–marinated steak sauteed with fresh garden vegetables

Combo #3 ($10.50)–Cheese Enchilada and Tamale served with frijoles and Spanish rich

Carne Asada ($15.50)–New York steak beans, rice and pico de gallo
